Pastel Pink Hair - Using Stargazer Baby Pink

ps. do you see what I mean about my camera not focusing?! All my pictures are slightly out of focus :(


   Don't panic. It's not permanent! I'm not that adventurous. There's no way I would colour my hair without being able to revert to my regular, boring, blonde self within a few washes! But yes, I've attempted pastel pink! And my hair looks horrid and lank in these pictures as it was up all day!

   It took two goes using diluted Stargazer baby pink (which I can pick up at a fairly local hippie-esque shop!) mixed with conditioner to get the right potency! (Before this I applied some toner to whiten my hair) I think I was a bit tentative first time round, as last time I tried to go lilac my hair went pretty dark, even with a tablespoon of dye in a ton of conditioner! This was about a year ago. But a couple of weeks later it washed out to a nice granny rinse look, as you can see below - apologies for rubbish picture quality. Thank god for semi-permanent dyes!




   I'm thinking next of attempting lilac and pink bits throughout my hair, but it kind of reminds me of being in my last year of school and having bleached streaks in my hair that I dyed all different colours, which the teachers did not approve of! I'm unsure, but I'll probably do it anyway as I get bored with just being blonde from time to time. Does anyone else like to experiment with their hair? Any suggestions for future hair experiments?!

    1. To get it this shade it really needs to be bleached and toned, which is petty annoying! I think it'd look pretty cool to have a pink tone over brown hair though if it showed up in sunlight! xx

    1. I have stuck to blonde for so long now - at least already being blonde you can lighten it easily if you want to :) I remember being brunette and dying my hair soooo many times to get it blonde!xx
